Discover the unlimited possibilites with Miclik!

I am a huge fan of toys that has no limit. One which allows creativity and ideas to flow in whatever directions possible, and these are just what our children of today need, and should be capable of.

When Explorer Junior sent us 2 boxes of Miclik, pieces of toys that can be snapped and folded together for unlimited possibilities, the kids were exhilarated! They were ready to put their thoughts into action till they went, "what can I do Mummy?"

Box of 48 pieces each

Guess the kids are just too scheduled to what to do and what not to do. I then got my hands on it and realized it does take some thinking and strategizing on these modular. WHAT and HOW to create.

Good thing, the box came with a booklet of simple instructions and ideas on what to create. Not extensive but good enough for starting out. That gave the kids direction to work on. After which, Js were able to venture more wildly with their own ideas.

Happy creators

While Js were exploring, they not only tapped on their creative juices, but also the art of being patient. Which is much needed during the build up.

The toy connectors come in 4 colours - pink, blue, yellow and green. We love how visual stimulation is cleverly considered in this toy. Creativity, imagination and happiness is colourful, isn't it? After all, children are attracted to bright and contrast colours.

It sure makes playing more fun!

Snap and Fold

Love too, the pieces shaped like that of a hexagon did make thinking out of the box. It allows many possibilities of connecting and involves much thinking on the best method to make their structure firm and steady. With 6 holes on one side and 4 protruding on the other, it sure involves some experiments when building.

They then went on to explore making ship, belts, tiara, sword and shield and the endless creations.

Looking like a ship and a mini crown

Beyond bricks and blocks, I do think preschools and homes of today should start exploring toys that have newly evolved with with the elements of creativity and imagination. Toys we choose in the early development years are crucial to a child's learning and development.

We do need to choose our toys wisely at times.

Miclik is designed in Barcelona and is recommended for ages 3 and above. Adults included, I say. A feel on these pieces, one can tell they are of maximum quality and safety standards. A well done and good finished toy. Stated on its box, it also assured that the toy meets the European and American safety standards.

Miclik priced at $49.90 consists of 48 pieces in each box and the educational pack priced at $79.90 consists of 96 pieces.
